Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN October 18, 2016 10:05am-10:56am EDT
mr. trump: thank you very much, everyone. wow. beautiful. what a crowd. we want to start by thanking the fire marshal. do you agree with that? fire marshall, thank you. this room is packed. in 22 days we are going to win the state of wisconsin. we're going to win back the white house. starting the look that way. you saw the polls. we are up in ohio. early voting is underway, so make sure you send in those absentee ballots, right? send them in. together, we are going to deliver real change that puts america first. america first. we are going to renegotiate our
terrible trade deals and illegal immigration, stop the massive inflow of refugees, reduce surging crime, cut tax and regulation, end common core, create millions of jobs -- get him out. get him out. all right, 'em out. all right. you can take him out. there is always one in a group, isn't there? but you always have to be very nice because the media will say you weren't nice. we weren't kind. we weren't kind. ok. go ahead.
get him out. thank you. you get him out? [crowd noise] mr. trump: there is always one. always one. thank you, police. thank you very much. is there any more fun place to be than a trump rally? seriously. and there is no safer place and no more energetic place. we have a lot of energy. you know what i mean by energy. we fought some people that did not have a lot of energy, and you know what happened to them. a lot of energy. ok? let's get going. get him out as fast as you can.
we are going to create millions of jobs by unleashing american energy and repealing and replacing job killing obamacare. your jobs will come back under a trump administration, come back like you have never seen before. your incomes will go up under a trump administration. your taxes will go way down under a trump administration. and you know that crooked hillary wants to raise your taxes big league, just so you understand. your companies will not be leaving wisconsin under a trump administration. believe me. there will be consequences for those companies. we are also going to end government corruption.
hillary clinton is the most corrupt person ever to run for the presidency of the united states. mr. trump: newly released fbi documents -- always the same. everybody understands exactly what went on. newly released fbi documents, made public just today reveal just how deep this corruption goes. you saw it. the undersecretary of state, patrick kennedy, illegally pressured the fbi to unclassified -- unclassify e-mails from hillary's illegal server. that's a lot of you a gala he and that one statement, isn't it?
in other words, the state department was trying to cover up hillary's crimes of sending classified information on a server our enemies could easily access, which is what we are talking about. this is a criminal act, a conspiracy that included hillary's deleting and bleaching of 33,000 e-mails, the disappearance of 13 phones --
mr. trump: all right, get him out. take him out. i will say, you are a voice, barely, and then our people take on theirs and you've got 2000 people pointing a finger. and by the way, that's only a small percentage of this group. this is amazing. this is amazing for it. but you know what, keep doing it. it is more fun that way, right? frankly if you didn't do that you would not even hear this guy. that's ok. thank you. thank you very much. so, you have the disappearance of 13 iphones, many of them whacked with a hammer.
who here has gotten rid of your phone and hit it with a hammer. -- it with a hammer? how many? anybody? oh, i want to find out the business that guy is an. but she whacked a lot of them with her hammer. just whacked to them. two boxes -- i don't know if you even know this -- two boxes of e-mail evidence has gone missing, and the destruction of laptops in a secret deal with the fbi. remember also that crooked hillary lied under oath to congress, saying that she had never sent or received information that was classified on her insecure server.
and she pretended not to know that the letter c meant confidential information that was classified, right? hillary told the fbi she could not remember 35 times, bad memory. then under oath she said she could not remember approximately 21 times. can anyone believe this stuff? seriously. i will tell you -- look, i will tell you. this is one of the great miscarriages of justice in the history of this country. what has happened to the department of justice, what has happened to the fbi is so sad. you have so many incredible
people in justice and an fbi, -- and in fbi, and they must be absolutely reeling. they probably do not believe themselves what is going on. we are witnessing a criminal
enterprise that has turned our government into a vehicle for the clintons personal profit at your expense. but it gets worse. it gets worse. the fbi document that shows undersecretary of state patrick kennedy made the request for altering classification as part of a quid pro quo. in other words, a deal. this is felony corruption by any standard. undersecretary kennedy needs to resign.
i wonder if mommy and daddy are going to be angry at her tonight. all right. that's ok. hey, i have to tell you. we haven't had any of this practically. the bernie supporters had much more energy. they really did. they had a lot more energy. so, clinton and her cronies have sacrificed your security, your family's safety and your country's safety as though it
meant nothing to her at all, which it didn't. this magnitudes worse, in my opinion and the opinion of many people and law enforcement, this is worse than watergate, what is going on. and what does she get out of it? she gets to run for the presidency of the united states. explain that. but we are going to put an end to that on november 8. yeah, we are going to win. those polls were great today, but you know, they are also showing an undercurrent. you remember when i was in the primaries? how is he doing on such and such? well, it looks like he won't win that state. in the next day, you win a landslide. they say, what happened? this is, i guess, people do not want to say they are voting for
trump? which is ok. we will take it anyway we get it. do you agree? we will take it anyway we get it. but there is a big, big undercurrent out there. another series of e-mails shows top officials in the clinton campaign scheming to take massive sums of money from foreign lobbyists. one of the e-mails said "take the money." and you know they had -- just take the money. this is money bundled by people registered as lobbyists on behalf of foreign governments. remember -- we are competing in a rigged election. this is a rigged election, folks, ok? i said it -- remember, i won louisiana? how many delegates did i get? i said, what is going on. i won the state.
i went there friday with these massive crowds, great state. i won the state. so, i'm going over there and they are saying, how many? they're saying, wait a minute, this guy has 18, i have nine. he said, that is the way the system works. then it is a rigged system. but you have to say -- we figured it out, right? we figured it out. but it is, and bernie sanders with his superdelegates, everything else, bernie sanders, i bet he wished he didn't endorse her. he would have been something very special in history, but we are not going to let that happen to us, ok? not to the movement. the media is trying to rig the election by giving credence and this is so true -- by giving credence to fall stories that have no validity -- they take a story with absolutely nothing that didn't exist and they put it front-page news because they want to poison the minds of the voters.
they really do. the one to poison the minds. they take things as statements and put it in, from 30 years ago, 20 years ago. by the way, just so you understand, events that never happened. you do understand that? it's amazing. it's amazing. i think most people do believe me. that is why we are having -- and it's in our favor -- a backlash like nobody has ever seen before. people are tired of it. front-page news, the phone call. it is all false stuff. there is a backlash.
a very, very prominent person from wisconsin just left the back room. i said hello to him. he said, mr. trump, i want to thank you. you are taking abuse the likes no one who has ever run for public office has taken. i really appreciate it. and most important you have your former miss wisconsin, right? who got out of the hospital to be with us. this is one of the greatest people you will ever -- who got out of the hospital. stay out of that hospital, will you? an amazing, amazing person, an amazing woman, thank you, thank you darling -- thank you, darling, for being here. and we have our generals, and we
have our share -- we have our share of. -- we have our sheriff. nobody is going to mess with us. nobody going to mess with our sheriffs. and he was there early when he endorsed trump. he was there very early. thank you, sheriff. i appreciate it. and his family, more importantly. more importantly. thank you for being here. appreciate it. the media is an extension of the clinton campaign, as wikileaks has proven. they don't talk about wikileaks. they just keep talking about trump, trump, trump. they want to put nice, sexy headlines up even though nothing happened, nothing took place, it's a total fabrication. they have got to start talking about wikileaks, the things that are going on. hillary even got the question unanswered --
mr. trump: we need some truth. we need truth. you know, to make america great again, we do need some truth from these people. because they poison the minds of voters. not everybody understands what is happening and by the time they figure it out, it is too late. they are poisoning the minds of voters. remember this. all right, get him out. that's ok. you notice, it is always one at a time. one at a time.
by the way, where is diane hendrix. where is she? she's so amazing. one of your great, great successful people. she is an amazing woman. diane, i know you are here someplace. wherever you are. amazing woman. hillary even got the questions and answers in advance of a major debate. how do you do that? and nobody made a big deal. nobody even knows about it. she got the questions in advance to essentially a debate. can you imagine if donald trump got the questions in advance? do you know what they would do? they would reinvent the electric chair. that's what they would do. you don't even hear about that? sheriff, did you hear about this? she got -- and by the way, behind you is one of your great football players, folks.
look at this guy. and he is a man of god, i will tell you. thank you, one of the greats. those championships. i don't know about green bay. what do you think. are they going to be ok? he says yes. a new report from the center of public integrity shows that 96% of so-called journalists or reporters who made presidential donations this circle gave the money, gave themselves, gave everything to forget clinton. crooked hillary clinton. can you believe it? they even want to try to rig the election at the polling booths, and believe me, there is a lot going on. you ever hear these people, they say there is nothing going on. people died 10 years ago are still voting.
illegal immigrants are voting. where are the streetsmarts of some of these politicians? they don't have any is right. so many cities are corrupt and voter fraud is very, very common. the following information comes straight from pew research. "approximately 24 million people" one of every eight voter registrations in the united states are no longer valid or significantly inaccurate. one in eight. more than 1.8 million deceased individuals right now are listed as voters. oh, that's wonderful. well, if they are going to vote for me, we will think about it? all right. but i have a feeling that not going to vote for me. of the 1.8 million, they are voting for someone else. approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.
do we love our police? do we love our police? law enforcement. law enforcement. thank you. thank you. you can see they are getting angrier and angrier with everyone. because they are such a disturbance to you people. and then there is the issue of illegal immigrant voting. the following comes from a 2014 report from "the washington post." or than 14% of noncitizens in 2008 and 2000 samples indicated they were registered to vote. isn't that wonderful?
because noncitizens tend to favor democrats -- to put it mildly. obama won more than 80% of the vote of noncitizens in the 2008 sampled. you don't read about this, right? your politicians don't tell you about this when they tell you how legitimate all of these elections are. they don't want to tell you about this. we find this participation was large enough to plausibly account for democratic victories in various close elections, ok? all right? noncitizens votes could have given senate democrats the pivotal vote needed to overcome filibusters to overcome other obama administration priorities. now it continues. it's possible that noncitizen votes were responsible for obama's 2008 victory in north carolina. obama won the state. a turnout by 5.1% of north carolina's adult citizens.
and by the way, we are doing great in north carolina. we're going to win, folks. but we don't want noncitizen voters, if that's ok. is that all right to ask for? it could have provided his margin of victory. our system is also rigged by the donors giving hundreds of millions of dollars to hillary clinton's campaign. i will have spent over $100 million on my campaign. i'm working for you, folks. i'm working for you. believe me. and they are all telling me what a great job and what a big movement -- there is never been anything like this in this country and even the enemies back there admit it. if i don't win, it will be the greatest waste of time, energy, and money -- oh, what a waste. they all say -- it won't be a waste.
you will be in history books. let me tell you, folks. i don't want to be -- if we win, we will do something. we will make america great again. that is what we are going to do. that is what we are going to do. the reason hillary clinton pushes for job killing nafta or transpacific partnership which you cannot let happen -- don't worry, we are building the wall. build the wall.
who is going to pay for the wall? crowd: mexico! mr. trump: 100%. by the way -- i'm not kidding. 100%. all of these partnerships and for completely open borders, she wants open borders. she wants people to pour across our borders. we will not have a country. it is because her international donors control every single move to makes. if we let the clinton cartel run this government, history will record that 2017 was the year america lost its independence. so important.
we will not let that happen. it is time. it is time to drain the swamp in washington, d.c. this is why i am proposing a package of ethics reforms to make our government honest again. when bill clinton -- it was right about obamacare two weeks ago, by the way -- is that it was crazy, crazy. he came into office and signed an executive order saying if you work for the white house or federal agency you can't lobby for the government for five years after you leave, but then president clinton did what the clintons always do. he rigged the system on his way out. he lifted the executive order so clinton cronies like john podesta could start raking in cash. here is what we as a group are announcing. first, i'm going to reinstitute a five-year ban on all executive branch officials lobbying the government for five years after they leave government service.
i am going to ask congress to pass this into law so it cannot be lifted by executive order, right? i will ban the lobbying by former members of congress and their staffs. it's enough. i am going to expand the definition of lobbyist so we close all of the loopholes that former government officials used by labeling themselves consultants, advisers, and all of these things in the get away with murder. it's not going to happen. i'm going to issue a lifetime ban against senior branch officials lobbying on the half of a foreign government. [cheering]
they are taking our jobs away. they are going to mexico. they are going all over the place. if they want to leave, there will be consequences. our politicians have worked for years to keep our companies. you want to leave? you want to build whatever you want to build. cars, so many companies. we lost 70,000 factories. 70,000 factories since the signing of nafta. i thought it was a typographical error. i thought 700, 7000. 70,000. at the center of my jobs plan will be fixing our terrible trade deals. they are horrible. 47 million americans are in poverty and 45 million americans are on food stamps. we have nearly an $800 billion annual trade deficit in goods with the rest of the world and the worst so-called recovery -- by far -- since the great depression. did you see the jobs numbers the other day? horrible. you saw gdp is going to be -- in my opinion -- less than 1%. you know, if china goes to 7%, a -- 7%, 8%, 9%, it's a national catastrophe. if we are less than 1%, which is what it will be, it is like, what else?
we will not put up with it. if the clintons who gave us nafta -- he signed it. remember that. bill clinton signed to the worst trade deal in the history of the world. and the clintons who gave us china's entry into the world trade organization -- here in wisconsin -- do we love wisconsin? you know why i'm here. first of all i have a lot of friends here. you know why i'm here? i'm here because everyone's calling me, everyone's calling, saying we're going to win wisconsin. a tough state. it is difficult for a republican to be in this position. we are going to win wisconsin. companies like briggs & stratton have cut manufacturing jobs and move them where? to china.
ge closed its milwaukee location and shipped its jobs to mexico. did you know that, sheriff? that's a lot of jobs. jobs and controls shutters plants in milwaukee. and they move the jobs to mexico and china and moves the jobs all over the place except to hear. the list goes on and on. many, many companies. leaving wisconsin, leaving everywhere. they are leaving our country. we are living through the single greatest job step in the history of the world. it's true. our companies are being rated. our jobs are being let go. we are being left with unemployment and empty buildings. they end up with cash. they end up with cash, tremendous factories like you've
never seen, magnificent plants, jobs all over the place. we end up with -- you know, we end up with two things. unemployment and drugs. they end up with the catch, we end up with the drugs, not so good. a trump administration is going to renegotiate nafta, stand up to china and get along with china. we don't get along with china now. they rip us off. and stop the jobs from leaving our country. i do a lot of business with china. china is wonderful. i wish our people ran our country like -- they are smart people. they are smart people. we don't have smart people running our country. we have people that are incompetent. we have a president -- we have a president -- all he wants to do is campaign for hillary clinton so she can double your health care costs. all he does is campaign. this guy -- every time you see him, he is campaigning for clinton, and frankly, he ought to be working on jobs, he ought to be working on the second amendment and the border and all of these things.
he ought to be working on taking care of our veterans and our military. but here is the guy, we go into mosul, we go into mosul, and why don't we just going quietly, right? they used to call it a sneak attack? i've been reading about it for four months. no, a primary reason for going in was we wanted to get the leaders of isis, right? they are gone, folks. they're gone. they are smart people. they read the same newspapers and articles we read. they said, hey, they are going to attack mosul. let's get out of here. they are all over the place. how stupid are our people? can you imagine the great general george patton and george macarthur -- you know what they are doing, right? they are spinning in their graves, and we won't be -- we will be attacking sometime next week.
i've been reading about this for months. and honestly, i have always heard -- i always used to wonder what they don't go -- and i met -- i meant like quietly. you remember, they used to call it the element of surprise. now our element of surprise is in four months we will be attacking mosul. i wonder what our generals think about that. not too good. not too good. as part of our plan to create at at least 25 million jobs in 10 years, we are going to lower our business tax from 35% to 15%. we are going to make our nation rich again. we are going to have great companies, we are going to have great jobs are going to come back to america. but to be a rich country, we must be a safe country. national security begins at the border.
speaking in a secret meeting to a foreign bank, hillary clinton said her dream is for totally open trade. there goes the rest of your jobs. and open borders. there goes your country. between open trade, your jobs, open borders, your country. other than that she is doing a great job. by open trade, she means for the -- she means foreign countries can cheat us out of millions of dollars, and really, its trillions and trillions of dollars. by open borders she means totally unlimited immigration. in a secret speech to goldman sachs, she said citizens who want to control immigration are un-american. i don't think so. deplorable, right? irredeemable.
he looks good to me. hillary thinks most of the country is either deplorable or irredeemable, un-american, racist, or basement dwellers. that is what she called bernie sanders people, basement dwellers. oh, bernie, why did you do it, bernie? you know, his people are saying, why did you do it, bernie? why did you do it? poor bernie. now he has a rally and 100 people show up. he could have left a great mark on history. now he won't. i think we will get a lot of bernie people, because one of the things that bernie knew was we were getting a bad deal on trade. right now it's a one-way highway out. hillary's plan includes open borders with the middle east meeting generations of radical terrorism within our shores. let me state this as clearly as i can. if i'm elected president, i am going to keep radical islamic terrorists the hell out of our
country. he won't even use the term and neither will she. we will stop the crisis of illegal immigration. have to do it. a trump administration will secure and defend our borders. and yes, we will build the wall we just talked about and you will be -- you know, when we got the endorsement of all the border patrol agents and ice last week -- ice endorsed those. ice. i said to them, tell me about the wall.
who knows better than these people? they said, we need the wall, mr. trump. we need the wall. we are going to stop drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth. they are poisoning our youth. poisoning our youth. before our youth get a chance to go and make it, they are being poisoned by this garbage pouring in from the southern order. -- southern border. the secretary of state hillary clinton allowed thousands of criminal aliens to be released because their home countries would not take them back. we would bring them, we would have a murderer, we would have gangs and gang members. we would bring them back to our country. they intelligently said we don't want them. take them out. and our guys said, ok. hillary clinton never forced these criminals back into their home countries.
guarantee you not one time as president will you see that happen. there will be no times when we don't take these people and put them into their country where the country is telling us, take them back. we don't want that murderer. that country is taking their people back. there is a reason they are here. if you remember a long time ago, i said, they are forcing some of the people in. let me tell you. we have people in this country that are bad dudes. we are getting them out. and the country is going to take them. the ice officers in their endorsement of me described hillary's proposal as "the most radical immigration proposal in united states history. here is a summary of hillary's plan. support totally for sanctuary cities. some bad people are getting security in sanctuary cities.
security, medicare. making them all citizens. in many cases they are being treated better than our great veterans. remember that. we are not going to allow it. obamacare for illegal immigrants. no deportation of these over states. expanding catch and release on the border and you catch them, hey, go ahead, do whatever you want. catch -- it's called catch and release. expanding president obama's executive amnesty including work permits for illegal immigrants. and she wants a 550% increase in syrian refugees. that is over obama's number. either we win this election or we lose our country. i really believe that.
this is it. this is the last shot we have. i sort of felt it last time. i don't just feel it i know it. under a trump administration is going to be america first. and by the way, that is the most beautiful little girl -- hi, honey. look how beautiful. do you want to see me. do you want to come up? come on. the most beautiful little girl. she got all decked out. wow. so beautiful.
here are some of the amazing things we're going to do for our country starting in 2017. we are going to have one of the biggest job producing tax cuts in american history. it's going to be amazing. we are going to eliminate every unnecessary job killing regulation. we are going to defend religious liberty. we will provide school choice to every low income child in america. rebuild our depleted military and take care of our great, great, great veterans. we are going to support the men in women of law enforcement. we will again repeal and replace obamacare. here is one that is very
important to wisconsin. we will save our second amendment which is under siege. and we will appoint justices to the united states bring court -- united states supreme court who will uphold and defend the constitution of the united states. you have 22 days to make every dream you have ever dreamed for yourself and your family come true. on november 8, the arrogance of washington, d.c. well him face-to-face with the righteous verdict of the american voter. i am going to fight for every citizen of every background. i'm going to fight for every child living in poverty. we have so much poverty in this country which is so hard to believe. i'm going to fight for every mom who lost their child to illegal immigration and drugs and gun violence.
i'm going to fight for every community whose jobs and dreams have been ripped out and shipped to other countries. so many. i am going to fight for every person in this country who believes government should serve the people, not the donors and special interests. i am going to fight to bring us all together. we live in a very divided country. there is going to be spirit. we are going to get along. imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people under one god saluting one american flag. boy, i'll tell you, wisconsin loves this country. you really do.
you people are amazing. in 10, 20, 30, 40 years you will look back at this rally -- for the rest of your lives, you are going to remember this day. this is a movement like nobody in this country has ever seen before. you are going to look back at this election and say this is by far the most important vote i have ever cast for anyone at any time. because once again we are going to have a government of, by and for the people.
